Consumers are saying no to single-use plastic, leading innovative brands from PepsiCo to Evian to design replenishment platforms that offer alternative ways to consume their products

Consumers are paving the way for environmental change by leaving single-use water bottles behind—in fact, according to PSFK research, 64% of consumers are avoiding single-use plastic. Now, brand-driven replenishment platforms are working to meet this demand. From increasing the use of hydration stations on college campuses to mixing cleaning products at home, these brands are changing the face of packaging and providing alternative ways to consume their products:

The platform includes a water dispenser, individual QR code stickers and a smartphone app. The system allows users to track their water intake and track the number of plastic bottles they've avoided.
